I work on multiple projects in Eclipse, and in fact some of projects are in Java, others Ruby and others C. The problem is when I open a new project file using the package explorer, in the tab bar on top, all the existing files I was looking at for other projects remain there, so now there is a disorded mess of mingled files for different projects. Any solution to this problem? How can I display one project at a time?

There may be something with working sets, which I do not use. Also,
right-clicking on a project will give you a context menu several of
whose items allow you to close the project (and its files), close
unrelated projects (and their files), etc.

Then, there is what I use, the workspace. I don't keep dissimilar
projects (Android vs. JEE, etc.) in the same workspace (though I could).

If I absolutely want all of them up at the same time so I don't have to
change workspaces (which is mildly annoying because somewhat time
consuming), then I run multiple instances of Eclipse and switch between
workspaces. (Realize that I run Linux, which does this much better than
Windows, that I have lots of memory and that I have two 30" monitors,
each 2560x1600 pixels and therefore much real estate to spread multiple
instances of applications across.

I know this doesn't answer your question the way you want it to be answered.

Cheers

Mylyn and its task focusing might be of interest.
